North Viet Nam's ruling circlei
has been torn by internal divi-
sions. Two factions, one support-
ing Russia and the other leaningf
toward Communist China, haveI
been tugging for power. There has1
been no clear indication as to
which faction might be on top at
any particular time.
Naturally, Communist China
has gone to the defensive, asking
fence-straddling nations such as
North Viet Nam, Rumania and
North Korea to choose between it
and Russia.
Peking views the Viet Nam
war as a crucial test of its "war of
liberation" thesis first enunciated
by Defense Minister Lin Piao, Mao
Tse-tung's heir-apparent. As the
self-proclaimed leader of the rev-
olutionary brand of Communism,
Peking hopes to convince the U.S.
that movements such as that led
by the Viet Cong are destined for
success as part of the theory of
encirclement. This thesis states
that the "have-not," rural areas
of the world, led by Communist
China, will eventually overwhelm
the "have" nations such as the
U.S. and the Soviet Union.
Peking's recent statements have
indicated that it considers Mos-
cow as a principal threat to its
revolutionary plans. The regime

relatively mild statement, which
indicated that Communist China
is anxious to avoid war with the
U.S.
In the past, several peace feelers
from Hanoi have been either ig-
nored or turned aside by the U.S.
The explanation for this, given
by U.S. policymakers in the past,
has been that the signals from
North Viet Nam were unclear or
that Secretary Rusk's diplomatic
antenna had failed to pick up any
sign of an easing in Hanoi's stand.
But, if the Soviet Union is in-
deed actively engaged in an ef-
fort to promote the chances of a
peaceful settlement of the war, it
will undoubtedly be difficult for
Washington to ignore the flurry
of diplomatic activity that will
surely result in capitals around the
world.
